    Restaurant was recommended by friends who live in Seattle and Open Table reviews and it didn't disappoint! Service was outstanding, food was delicious and nicely presented. Setting was large open room with very high ceilings creating a ski lodge atmosphere. Our experience was outstanding. I would definitely recommend.

    Dined on 10/17/2014
    For one thing it was cold in the restaurant, the food was good but for the price the servings were more small not large plates. In some ways things like the plate brought with the rolls with a tiny portion on it was kind of silly. We laughed about how big the plate was. For the cost I am not sure we would go back.

    Just a couple of blocks away from the SeaTac strip, hidden in its own woodsy cul-de-sac, this handsome restaurant completely justifies the surprise and satisfaction expressed by other reviewers. The food is beautifully prepared with all kinds of subtly intermixed tastes and textures. The green herb dressing on the salad was a delightful original creation. I'm used to Chinese and Korean versions of pork belly, so I found this "small plate" hard and tasteless, but it was the only disappointment of the evening. With tip and generally light eating, no drinks, one dessert, two coffees, three of us spent $150.

    Our dining experience at the Copperleaf Restaurant was exceptional. The food was expertly prepared and beautifully presented, and the menu offerings were nicely varied. The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive and the ambiance was wonderful. We were seated in front of a beautiful stone fireplace, the ceiling was stories high, and the seating arrangements were varied and attractive. I would return again and again.

    This was an incredible awesome surprise dining experience! The decor, ambiance, service and most importantly the food were excellent. This was definitely one of the best hotel restaurant dining, no, dining experiences I have had in the past 10 years. The food was innovative, exciting and delicious. The flavors in each plate were distinct yet perfectly harmonious. We had dinner with 2 friends and all ordered different dishes, everyone was floored with their appetizers, dinners and desserts. Hopefully, this restaurant is consistently this good because I'm really looking forward to our next visit.

    I dined at Copperleaf Restaurant for our anniversary. I had seen the great reviews on Trip Advisor and had been wanting to go here for a long time. I wished I had come sooner. Valet Parking is complimentary while dining at the restaurant, which was nice and convenient. Once you get into the lodge, you feel like you are out of SeaTac. Nice quiet ambience, surrounded by greenery. We ordered the Pork Belly for appetizer, which was delicious! They gave us complimentary champagne since it was our anniversary. I had lamb for dinner and my husband had duck. Everything looked and tasted absolutely scrumptious! And for dessert I recommend the pineapple upside down cake. Pineapple sherbet and coconut vanilla mouse with candied pecans. I will be back!

    We stumbled across this jewel of a dining experience a few years ago, and every time we're in the Seattle area, we make it a point to visit. The food always delights. Its atmosphere is surprisingly comfy, given that the menu wouldn not disappoint the gourmet in all of us. So much so, that even the most calorie-conscious diner couldn't pass up specialty drinks, appetizers, and the truly decadent desserts. Finding the Copperleaf Restaurant is very much like a treasure hunt, but you get to eat the treasure. Enjoy!

    The atmosphere is lovely - casual and classy at the same time. Classual?!? The staff was attentive and not intrusive allowing me and my friends to have a relaxed conversation. My scalps were cooked perfectly and the server recommended melon salad was delightful. The aperitif surprise of elderberry juice and shortbread wafer capped off a great meal.

    The service was a little slow to get started but once contact was made it became excellent. The complimentary crab cake appetizer was delicately prepared and tasty. The salad was crisp with just the right amount of dressing. The filet mignon was done to medium rare just right and though, not prime, it was very tender and flavorful. The only minus is the open area sitting with no privacy, similar to eating in a open hall with tables. Forget about a romantic evening here when you can peer into the next table and listen to adjacent conversations without trying. They need dividers or sitting arrangements to give diners some sense of ambiance.

    Dined on 9/10/2014
    The food was outstanding. We would have liked some more selections on the menu, however. The prices were somewhat high, but the quality was worth it. This is an unusual location, in the middle of a mid-class neighborhood, so not sure how much of clientele they have. The restaurant is located in the Cedarbrook Hotel, which is near Sea-Tac Airport and probably gets a lot of business clients. Got the impression that they were striing for a "Canlis" atmosphere. Some nice little touches, like an "amuse bouche" two-bite offering before dinner and a refreshing soda aperitif after dinner.

The staff was excellent and they cared about our dining experience. Really, they cared a lot about it. They were also a nice mix of relaxed, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I cannot recommend the Copperleaf enough.

    We were staying at an airport hotel in Tacoma/Seattle, looking for a neighborhood place to eat. We came across this restaurant in Trip Advisor and Open Table. Since our hotel would not provide transportation to the Cedarbrook Lodge resort, their hostess Terri sent their own shuttle to pick us up. The lodge is definitely not an airport hotel! It is more of a resort. The restaurant has a wonderful ambiance, including an outdoor dining area, complete with fireplace and firepits. We had the most fantastic meal, with a terrific server, Justin, who took great care of us, advising us on menu items and making perfect recommendations. We would absolutely recommend this resort and this restaurant.

    The food is delicious but pricey and little too precious. The salmon would have been better with a subtle sauce. Only complaints were that the espresso and French press machines were not working and the regular coffee was too weak even for regular coffee. And they could not comply with a request for Irish coffee Otherwise for a location near the airport, the location and food were wonderful.

    the restaurant itself is pleasing to the eye. the staff was pleasant. I would recommend the corn soup but I would not recommend the New York steak.for the price you pay you would expect for the steak to easily be sliced and melt in your mouth.unfortunately the steak was a challenge to cut and tough to eat.

    We wanted to celebrate our anniversary before my husband flew out of SeaTac. We were staying in a hotel nearby for the evening. Not much fine dining near the airport but Copperleaf was a definite EXCEPTION! All the food was wonderful and artistically presented. My daughter the vegetarian also enjoyed her dining experience with us. We were offered an amuse bouche (sp?) and also complimentary champagne for our anniversary. I had octopus appetizer, duck entrée and peach sorbet for dessert--all scrumptious! Service was attentive and knowledgeable.

    I always enjoy taking new individuals to this delightful restaurant. Driving to it all wonder at the destination by the neighborhood we proceed through. Everyone is surprised as we discover the locations manicured park like setting upon arrival. The surprise does not end there as the service and the food always impress whether it be lunch or dinner. For those looking for a venue for a special occasion this is the place especially if it entails out of town guests. Not once have I or my guests been disappointed with the Cedarbrook Lodge or it's Copperleaf Restaurant.

    Most everyone at our table if nine enjoyed their food. The three lettuce salad was beyond any lettuce salad I've had! The fois gras was sublime, especially with the Sauternes that Rebecca recommended. The pineapple upside down cake was surprising and wonderful - slightly deconstructed, nutty, filled with something yummy. The disappointment was the bacon wrapped ling cod - over cooked nugget of fish wrapped in bacon which made it taste like nothing but bacon. David was a friendly server. Rebecca did well with wine recommendations.

    Enjoyed food and menu. Lamb was rare versus the requested medium rare but very tasty. Only criticism was waiter who was very attentive brought a 2nd bottle of Leonetti Merlot that was a different year than the first. I was fine with this but surprised when he poured the 2011 into my glass that still held a bit of the 2012. For an expensive wine and an upscale restaurant this was a major faux pas.
